I have covered Micropulse often in news and articles - and have been able to visit the facility a number of times - so it comes as no surprise that the company is growing, again.

Micropulse is investing $6.8 million to expand, equip, and better use its 160,000ft2 Columbia City facility at 5865 E State Road 14. This will allow the company to serve an increasing customer base, providing medical instrumentation, implants, sterilization cases and trays, as well as sterile packaging services for all market segments within the orthopedic industry. The company also plans to purchase new equipment to support growing production, renovate 3,000ft2 within the building to be better suited for growth, and construct a 15,000ft2 addition to allow for continued expansion. Construction of the addition will start later this summer, and Micropulse plans to be fully operational in the new and upgraded facility by the fall of 2020. Read More
